Food and beer was great. IMO the +100 USD bill for 3 people seemed high, considering other similar PC restaurants. This is not a complaint, rather an awareness message to others....we should have confirmed pricing before ordering. Based on our experience, you should enjoy it....the decor, service, and food are very good. Value/ cost is personal opinion.

One of the nice things in Panama is the variety of food available. There are several Lebanese restaurants in the city and we tried a couple. Beirut had good food and service. The shish kebob plate came with a lot of meat. The outdoor patio is large and a great place to sit. The only issue we had was that... More

Great pita bread, inflated like a ballon, hummus excellent. Wine list inexistente, only one bottle os Sauvignon. Food pretty taste, but squerry ambiance, people smoking hokkas, not good for food. overpriced

Impression of food at Beirut was mediocre. Mostly catering to the tourist crowd of nearby hotels (my impression), the food (Ceviche Beirut) and a number of appetizers were mediocre. Better options nearby. Beer expensive even for Panama City standards. Perhaps other meals are better. On the upside, nice place to sit outside.

The food here is as good as in a very good Lebanese restaurant in Beirut, Dubai or London. The menu included the usual stuff, all of very good quality and freshness. Today's was my second visit in as many years. It is busy both with locals and visitors. The prices are on the high side but the excellent food justifies... More

I went and I liked the overall decor. The first bad impression was when we entered and asked to sit by the fountain and they said the table was for six and we had three, though the restaurant was mostly empty. Ten minutes later they sat just a couple in that table! The food was fine, but nothing out of... More

Nothing out of the ordinary, but prepared quite well. Very large, open dining room, that still manages to feel quaint. Great fresh fruit smoothies.

A taste of the Middle East in downtown Panama. Located directly across from the Marriott Hotel, this Lebanese restaurant serves excellent food. You can sit either inside or out. Try the baba ghanoush - the puffed bread that comes with it is excellent.
